The Republican Governors Association issued a statement Tuesday evening declaring Gov. Chris Christie’s win as proof “that Republicans can compete and win in every state.”
The RGA issued the statement shortly after Christie was declared the unofficial winner of the governor’s race immediately after polls closed.
“His tenure as chief executive has placed a premium on achieving results over scoring political points. We are proud to congratulate Governor Christie on being rewarded by the voters with a much-deserved second term and look forward to his continued hard work on behalf of the people of New Jersey,” the statement reads.
